Is it common practise for doctors to prescribe, low dose steroids before Antibiotics?


I am helping out a young lady who is 19 years old. She has been placed in the position, of looking after her 15 year old sister. Mum is suffering from a mental illness. During a discussion, she mentioned to me that their family doctor prescribes low dose steriods before a course of Antibiotics. She said her mum, sister and herself have been receiving them for years like that. I am very concerned. Q. could this explain her mums deep depression? Q. Is this hurting the girls, they are still growing? She said it is some sort of genetic fault. I am not a doctor but I have never heard of it. Help!
